Did your family watch the eclipse on Monday? In Florida, we were only scheduled to see around 88%, so we decided to travel to NC in order to be in the path of totality. Personally, I was amazed. Watching the sky grow dark, feeling the temperature drop, and hearing everyone cheer when the sun was completely blocked out are all things I’ll never forget. It made for a long drive home, but we all agree that it was definitely worth the trip.
Were you in the path of 100% totality? I would love to hear about your family’s eclipse experience, so please share in the comments below.
Popular Posts From Last Week
It was another week where readers showed their love for all things curriculum!! These two middle and high school curriculum choice posts were the most clicked.
Our 2017/2018 Relaxed Homeschool Curriculum for 10th and 12th Grade by There’s No Place Like Home
I enjoyed reading these two as well:
- How to Assign High School Credit to Life Learning Opportunities by Pat and Candy
This is something I struggled wrapping my head around as my oldest entered high school. She’s an artist and her preferred mediums are drawing and coin carving. It’s easy to assign credit for the drawing classes she takes at our co-op, but coin carving? Not so much. So, I’m doing two of the methods suggested here to figure out her credit – mentors and hours spent.
- How to Plan High School Core Courses in Your Homeschool by Annie & Everything
Unfortunately, high school isn’t all about electives. We have to make sure our kids get the core courses they need too. I agree with Ann, that the best way to guarantee that you don’t miss anything is to plan ahead. This also helps you figure out what is actually necessary. For example, once my oldest and I sat down and laid everything out, we realized that she didn’t have to take the advanced math courses we thought she did (because of our state laws and her future plans), which made her VERY happy!
